If you’ve not heard of 3 Zinnen Dolomites before, it’s probably because it’s one of the region’s best kept secrets. The 5 authentic mountain towns of Sesto, San Candido Dobbiaco, Villabassa and Braies are all linked to enable easy exploring. It’s much the same for the ski area itself, over 100 km of pistes across the 5 mountains of Monte Elmo, Stiergarten, Croda Rossa, Passo Monte Croce and Val Comelico.
There’s plenty of space on the slopes and the curation is of the highest level, ensuring that conditions are always tip top. Snow is guaranteed thanks to the array of snow-cannons which can top up any natural shortfall. Finally, if you feel the need to explore further, the famous Italian ski town of Cortina is just 30 minutes away.
Offering 31 cable cars and lifts accessing 115 kilometres of the most carefully groomed pistes, there is plenty of skiing in this lesser-known region of the South Tyrol. The standard of terrain is suited to the intermediate but is geared to improving skiers, especially families with children.
One of the notable USPs is the night skiing available at Monte Baranci from 7pm – 10pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. This is great fun for the whole family.
Another highlight is the skiing adventure known as the “Giro delle Cime” – a one-day circular exploration of the area taking in Monte Elmo, Croda Rossa, Passo Monte Croce, Orto del Toro and back to the starting point at Versciaco.
If you’re staying inside the 3 Zinnen region, then a Skipass 3 Zinnen will be all you’ll need to access ALL the skiable terrain in the area. What’s more, and a bonus for families is that children aged 8 and under receive a free pass per each paying adult!
However, to really make the most of the region, opt for the full area, Dolomiti Superski pass. 1,200km of pistes and access to all 12 villages in the region – This makes it the biggest ski area in Europe!
As well as the obvious, there are a range of other fun activities in the 3 Zinnen…
As a family ski area, 3 Zinnen isn’t big on apres ski in the traditional sense. However, mountain huts, bars, restaurants and hotels alike are buzzing with music, food and drinks after the lifts close.
There are some notable mountain huts – known as Rifuges – to stop for lunch in 3 Zinnen…
3 Zinnen is tailored for family ski holidays. Everything from the slopes to the ski school to the transportation is designed to ensure you have a memorable, easy and fuss-free Italian ski holiday.
